[Ed. Note] The first one I would print is Applejack.

    Yeah, following the canons was always a concern of mine when I played with transformers. I was placed in the corner if I couldn't describe the themes of my interactions, or if the outcome was fate-driven instead of character-driven. Can you imagine if they ever made generic ripoffs of HotWheels? Nobody ever bought those, so those companies are all defunct, but it would have been a disaster if they caught on. I had 5 versions of Voltron! I had to come up with these time-machine based stories and make sure they never looked directly at one another to keep it consistent. I think I single-handedly saved the world from the butterfly effect many times over by being very careful what I imagined. That's ok, you don't need to thank me.
